Having just come back from the Founders and Funders Dinner in Toronto, it's time to get ready for the big Launch Party Vancouver 3 event this Friday. Maura and crew have pulled this together in record time, and it looks like Sun is going to be doing a big kickoff. What with the purchase of MySQL and supporting local tech communities like this, I'm getting more and more interested in looking closely at Sun.
Then, in 2 weeks time, we're doing DemoCamp Vancouver 05. I'll get the Facebook event sent out today, so watch for that. We need both battledeck submissions and people to demo...fill out the wiki or get in touch.
Whew! 2008 events are off with a bang. Here's some other stuff I'm tracking -- in no way complete or comprehensive.
- Third Tuesday Vancouver is up on January 29th, starring Brian Oberkirch
- the inaugural NetSquared Net Tuesday on February 5th
- the second Ajax and Beer that krazy koder Brian Leroux is putting on February 6th (yes, that is going to be one crazy week)
- the wonderful Cinci Csere is pulling together CaseCampVancouver3 -- an unconference for marketers (aka "case studies") on February 20th
- don't forget! Northern Voice 2008 is coming at the end of February...I am *so* looking forward to this...
- Duane is thinking we should do a Startup Weekend in Vancouver -- he's thinking early April right now
I'll likely come back and update that event list in a bit...
